Tony it's pretty easy with my Jeep at 2" of lift. I max out the camber setting and set the front toe at 1/16" to 1/8" in. To set the toe put the front axle on jackstands and measure the distance between the front of the wheels and the distance between the back of the wheels. The front distance should be 1/8" or 1/16" less. I measure using the same treadblocks on each tire, it's easier with a helper.

Also don't forget to reset the control arm bushings if you are using stock rubber bushings. Basically you loosen the bolts at the body end and the axle end of all the control arms, drive a short distance at low speed and tighten them back up with the jeep sitting on it's tires. My Jeep rode like a pogo stick before I reset the bushings.

Make sure your rear side to side measurements to the subframe are centered. Then measure your wheelbase from rim to rim. Then measure your front axle centered to the subframe. Then measure your toe in and out. Then adjust your pitman arm sleeve so your steering wheel is centered. Then tighten everything up. Go for a drive and see how it feels. Make minor adjustments as needed.

I like my Jeep, just like my women. 'Loose and Flexible'

Today, I cleaned the Heep's interior. It was already pretty clean, but needed a vacuum and some shining. Also added 4 more stickers, 2 small stickers celebrating Earnhardt Sr.'s induction into the Nascar Hall of Fame on the side windows, 1 medium Earnhardt sticker on the rear window and the Kevin's Off Road Sticker that came with my light bar on the rear window.

Drove it up to the mountain.

Half way there my trac bar fell off. There's a reason they put cotter pins in the frame side.

Mounted the spare tire on the Yakama roof rack. Washed and waxed it and started to get the snorkel ready for install. Also planning on ordering new ball joints and new high flow cat.

Went camping at Widowmaker last night, had a blast night wheeling. Ended up ripping off my my exhaust at the cat. The 350 mile drive home should be fun with the loss of torque and loud *** exhaust.

Im going to figure out a way to move to AZ asap, I fit right in with the culture here
